1. imo, it's inappropriate in the EXTREME to put.... POWs, and....
... 4 star generals who fought in Vietnam on this list...

Don't get me wrong - there's PLENTY of shit to deservedly speak of such people. But to lump them in with the chickenhawks is a MASSIVE wrong.

Or put it this way: the wrong committed by the POWs and the 4 star Generals is NOT the wrong of being too cowardly to put oneself in harm's way, while at the same time being willing to put others in harm's way.

I think there's a WORLD'S difference between the kinds of wrongs. Not (necessarily) greater-lesser, but DIFFERENT.

imo.
